Mozilla and Vista?

by gadgetb / June 7, 2007 7:09 AM PDT

When I exceed six or so windows with Mozilla, Vista forces me to close Mozilla.

I typically use, google, and social-networking websites.

And yes, I updated my Mozilla.

Has anyone had this problem?

Why not try the latest version of Firefox ...

and Thunderbird? They are fully Vista compatible, but might work better than an older version of Mozilla. How old is yours?

Just a suggestion.

I was forced to update earlier this week. So, my Mozilla is a week old. I've also considered downgrading my Vista to XP. Would that be hard?

certainly is much more involving than trying the Firefox/Thunderbird combination. You need to erase the hard disk using DBAN and find all XP compatible drivers. Discussions on this forum on the subject are easy to find.

It's up to you, of course, if keeping Mozilla is worth the trouble.
